Yes, Mr. President
It's been a long week and much has slipped through the cracks, but not too much. According to Tuesday's Financial Times, the interim Iraqi President, Ghazi al-Yawar, has told the Kuwaiti Al-Qabas:
"I absolutely disagree with those who believe a military attack [on Falluja] is necessary",
and that those who are ostensibly the target of the forthcoming assault
"want nothing but a military solution, and the continuation of bloodshed among Iraqis".
You probably need a subscription to get this on the FT, so I promise to ask LexisNexis tomorrow who else noticed it. I suppose that Ghazi al-Yawar has been the subject of constant defamatory briefing since, and probably before as well. Will check that too.
